Events and Activities

Reconciliation Week

Each year, the Reconciliation Lethbridge Advisory Committee and its community partners host a week of events to promote reconciliation in Lethbridge. In 2019, Reconciliation Week runs September 15 – 20.

Orange Shirt Day

Every year Orange Shirt Day is celebrated across Canada on September 30. The event is meant to support conversations about the impacts of Residential Schools and reconciliation in Canada. The Day reaffirms that the survivors and those impacted by Residential Schools matter. For more information, visit the Orange Shirt Day website.

National Indigenous Peoples Day

In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for National Aboriginal Day, now known as National Indigenous Peoples Day. For generations, many Indigenous peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.
